SERVE WEST DALLAS

Job Opening: Executive Assistant & Office Manager

The vision of Serve West Dallas (SWD) is to see spiritual, physical, social, and economic transformation within zip code 75212. Founded in 2009, SWD is a Christian non-profit 501(c)(3) designed to create, catalyze, and manage initiatives that facilitate strategic “cross-sector collaboration” in order to tackle large-scale needs and challenges. SWD, as a “backbone” organization, convenes various individuals, groups and entities (both non-profit, corporate, educational and governmental) around the common goal of holistically transforming the low-income, high-risk neighborhoods that make up West Dallas.

Reporting to and directly supporting the Executive Director (ED), the Executive Assistant & Office Manager will, first and foremost, share a dynamic and mature relationship with Jesus Christ that informs a desire to be a true servant leader. The ideal candidate will thrive in a small, inner-city, non-profit, faith-based setting, and be laser focused on staying one step ahead of the ED with a “no job is too small” mentality. This is a unique opportunity to be directly engaged in multi-faceted, inner-city collaborations that further both transformation of lives and physical areas.

Undergirding the entire work of SWD, this individual will:

  • Display demonstrated ability to effectively interface with individuals across a wide ethnic and socio-economic spectrum
  • Possess a high-detail orientation and broad skill set that includes expertise in office, vendor, grant, financial and meeting management
  • Communicate diplomatically, seamlessly and with excellence through all written and verbal outlets
  • Naturally enjoy concepting, planning and coordinating the logistics around convening multiple collaborative groups and ensuring their forward movement

EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE:

Bachelor’s degree with at least 2-3 years parallel work experience focused on broad-scale administration and executive support. Previous experience in the Christian non-profit sector or with an inner city, urban initiative is a plus. Conversational Spanish is a desired skill as more than 70% of the West Dallas population is Spanish speaking.

Proven technical experience with the following platforms, or ability to easily learn, is essential:

  • Microsoft Office Suite/DropBox – email/scheduling/filing/correspondence/presentations
  • Network for Good – donor database
  • Symphony/WordPress/MailChimp/Adobe Suite – website/marketing collateral/newsletter (working in conjunction with a MARCOM vendor)
  • Social Media – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram (working in conjunction with a MARCOM vendor)

Full-time position. Salary commensurate with experience.
